At a tiny size 3.5, this mourning ring was meant for a small woman. It fits perfectly on my pinky. Blonde braided hair is under the domed rock crystal, and all the pearls seem to be original. The ring wasn't heavily worn - it's in great shape. I noticed a split at the back from what I thought was a previous resizing, but then saw that a jeweler at some point invented a way to expand the ring to fit, perhaps, over an arthritic knuckle. An extra bit of metal expands the ring open and then closed again. This piece of tech is invisible from the outside. No inscription appears on the reverse of the hair locket.
This product is final sale.
9k gold (untested), seed pearls, rock crystal or glass, hair.
